Materials Science and Engineering Accelerated Master's

Materials Science and Engineering Accelerated Master's Program

Are you a highly motivated MSE undergraduate?

If so, you have the option of participating in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering’s accelerated masters program that allows you to earn both a BS and MS in Materials Science and Engineering in as little as 5 years.

MSE undergraduate students can earn up to 12 credits of coursework that will apply towards the MS degree. Students can start their master’s thesis work immediately upon finishing the BS degree, and complete all remaining requirements for the MS in Materials Science and Engineering in one additional academic year.
